As Managing Director of Exploding Phone, Andrew has steadily built up the business since its inception in 2009, on the foundations of a successful career in business systems. Andrew’s technical expertise and commercial acumen (gained in a FTSE 250 company) help him to understand the changing needs of businesses in the fast-moving area of mobile.
Andrew is passionate about technology, Formula One racing and all things mobile.
A seasoned developer, Simon came to Exploding Phone with fifteen years of software experience, and was our first employee. While maintaining his impressive system development and web skills, he’s worked on mobile apps from the beginning, and has honed his iOS and Android skills to perfection.
In his spare time, Simon kicks back with DIY, model trains, gardening and online poker.
Ben came to us from one of our biggest competitors, with four years of software development experience and a master’s degree in Computer Science. He has accumulated substantial experience of all the leading mobile platforms – iOS, Android, Windows Phone & BlackBerry and is also a Certified Java Developer.
Although he has written a software platform that reads and performs sheet music, Ben doesn’t play an instrument himself. He prefers computer games, and enjoys visits to National Trust properties.
Damian joined us from Coventry University where he graduated with a first class degree in Multimedia Computing. He has a background in graphic design and web development but has also developed excellent skills in iOS development.
Damian is a keen gadget lover and in his spare time enjoys getting out and about on his bicycle when the sun is shining (so not that often!).
Chris graduated with a first class degree in computing from Wolverhampton University. Having previously worked in the IT department of a large NHS hospital he brings a variety of skills to team including working in a Microsoft web development environment.
However his passion is primarily Android and he has a wealth of knowledge and experience with Google's mobile OS.
As a passionate graphic designer, Greg joined us with a large interest in typography, web design and frontend web development. After graduating from Birmingham City University and gaining over two years experience, he is a firm believer in the importance of good design and the role it plays with everyday life.
In his spare time, Greg likes to play his musical instruments, play computer games and collect and listen to old vinyl records.
David joined the Exploding Phone team in January 2017 having previously held a number of sales and marketing roles helping IT companies work with the Higher Education community. His approach to sales is very simple: happy customers are the best sales people which he regards as his USP (Unique Selling Point). Sadly David’s days of coding are long gone but he did build his first (and last) web site in the mid-90s and has a degree in Electronic Engineering, so he knows just enough to be dangerous.
When not grinding the wheels of commerce David enjoys going to the gym and drinking wine (not usually at the same time), getting out on his motorcycle and spending time with his family and their two Hungarian Vizslas.
